The hummingbirds are back around, and drinking from our window-based feeder! I managed to get a really clear shot of one of them:
The image is so clear, in fact, that if you zoom in on the full, hi-res version, you can actually seen the side of the house reflected in the hummingbird’s eye!
This shot was a bit of quirky luck: I had seen the birds buzzing in and out of the feeder several times during the day, but they usually take off when they see me moving in the house. On a random whim, I suddenly decided to grab the camera and stand, motionless, pointing at the feeder, just in case one went by. This was really a long shot, since they come by perhaps several times a day at most, but within a minute of me standing there, the fellow pictured above stopped in for a drink!
